Echo Kiwanis is honored to announce scholarship grant awards for three Echo High School seniors. Alyssa Ray and Natalie Sherbahn will each receive $1,500, and Monique Montoya was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
At the time of her application Alyssa has a 4.0 grade point average and plans to attend George Fox University on her way to becoming a pediatric occupational therapist. Alyssa is well established as a student leader, athlete, member of National Honor Society and holds a genuine appreciation for community service. Alyssa is this years’ class valedictorian.
Natalie is also holding a 4.0 GPA and intends to go to college near relatives at the College of the Ozarks in Missouri. Natalie wants to graduate in both mathematics and religion and aspires to be a teacher and serve in religious ministry. In her application, one of Natalie’s teachers was very appreciate of how much she – the teacher – had learned to rely on the kind of strong, capable caring student Natalie has been.
Monique, or “Moe”, has excelled as a thoughtful, helpful, capable athlete and student leader in her career at Echo Schools, exhibiting the “never give up” attitude in all she does. Currently from Stanfield and already taking college level courses, Moe is planning to attend Mount Hood Community College next Fall on her way to serving as a school counselor or youth psychiatrist.
